"Unless you're one of those types that like to live in caves, you should know 
at least a little something about the Mega Man universe, whether it be the fact 
that the series is divided in two (the X and the original series), the fact 
that Mega is a little robot dude in blue underwear that shoots bullets out of 
his arm, or the fact that he has more sequels than McDonalds has hamburgers."

Welcome to my Rockman X2: Soulraiser (GBC) walkthrough. I'm better at reading 
Kanji now than when I wrote my X5 one, hopefully I'll be able to translate more
of the game. n_n It's small at the moment cause I haven't played much of the 
game yet.

===============================================================================
1. Story
===============================================================================

I haven't been able to translate very much of the story yet. Actually, I 
haven't been able to translate any of it. XP Except Iris is in it. Why? I have 
no idea. But I don't like her anyways, oh well.

The villans of this game are two rather medievil looking characters. The first 
one you see is Garesu, a guy in silver armor with purple jewels on the helmet 
and shoulders. The other you see after defeating two Irregular bosses, her name
is Berukana.


===============================================================================
2. Features
===============================================================================

- Perhaps the first thing you notice when you play this game is that Iris is in 
it. I still have no idea why.

- Enemies COME BACK after you kill them! At least the green cannon things do.

- Play the whole game as either X or Zero, like in X4.

- Much of the music is from X2, the level music for Irregulars in X1 and X3 are
the same as their SNES counterparts, though.

===============================================================================

The set of Irregulars you have to find and battle depends on who you play the 
game as. Listed by Japanese name with English name in parentheses.

X's part of the game puts you against Shining Tigerd (Neon Tiger) from X3, 
Launcher Octopuld (Launch Octopus) from X1, Electro Namazuros (Volt Catfish) 
from X3, and Burnin' Noumander (Flame Mammoth) from X1.

ELECTRO NAMAZUROS

5.2. Zero's Mission

Zero's part of the game, like X's, sends you to take out four Irregulars. They 
are Wire Hetimarl (Wire Sponge) from X2, Explose Horneck (Blast Hornet) from 
X3, Sonic Ostreague (Overdrive Ostrich) from X2, and Screw Masaider (Tunnel 
Rhino) from X3.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WIRE HETIMARL

Heart Tank- Jump up the wall on the left immediately after starting the level.

Sub Tank- In the "tree" room with the vertical platforms over the spikes. Climb
up as high as you can and travel along the platforms. One of them is in a "C" 
shape, the Sub Tank is inside of it.

Boss Battle: Wire Hetimarl
Hetmarl has few attacks that are simple to avoid. He'll spin his vine around in
front of him like a shield, then throw the spiked end at you. Jump up on to the
wall and jump over him. Once he's low on health, He'll turn red and summon 
lightning bolts that come down from the ceiling. Just stay on one side of the 
screen to avoid these. I've had a hard time hitting him once he's turned red.

Weapon gained- Lightning
Releases several lightning bolts that shoot down from the top of the screen.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EXPLOSE HORNECK

Heart Tank- In the second area with floating bug machines. I haven't gotten it
yet, though.

Nothing like its X3 version. Horneck's level is much more vertical, forcing you
to climb upwards into the building by way of floating machinery and platforms.

Boss Battle- Sub Boss
You'll encounter a room with two orbs on each wall. They light up one at a 
time and shoot at you. Hit them when they light up to destroy them. Once all 
four are out, you can leave the room. Tiny hornets will be flying at you the 
whole time, destroy these for extra energy.

Heart Tank- ?

Boss Battle- Explose Horneck
Horneck has two attacks. One is releasing two little wasps at you, the other is
diving at you with stinger exposed. Simply swat the smaller bugs and slash away
whenever Horneck sits still. To avoid the stinger attack, 

Weapon gained- A-sugeiza-
Destroys everything on the screen.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SONIC OSTREAGUE

Watch out for the tornado machines, this level is nothing like its X2 version. 
These machines will kill you if you touch the tornado they create.

Heart Tank- ?

Head Parts- Just past the area with the tornado machines, there's a ladder 
against a wall, and a pit on the left of the screen. Jump over the pit as far 
as you can, then air dash over to another ladder. Climb up to find the capsule.

Boss Battle- Sonic Ostreague
Stay on the high ridge and try to keep Ostreague in the lower area. This will 
make it easier to jump over him when he charges at you. If he bounces across 
the screen, stay in the lower area and dash beneath him. When he disappears 
from the screen and reappears in the background, stay in the lower area till 
he jumps down over you. Jump over his Sonic Slicers, and just slash away.

Weapon gained- Dash
Dash forward and slash attack an enemy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SCREW MASAIDER

Again, not much like the original X3 version. Watch out for the boulders, try 
to take them out with your Z Sabre if you can.
After you're forced to leave your Ride Armor, get through the next area as fast
as you possibly can and hang out on the walls closest to the top of the screen 
to avoid the lava that will be spurting up shortly.

Heart Tank- In the area with the Ride Armor. Go as far to the right as you can,
you'll see it above you on a ledge. Back up a bit, dash jump and hover with the
Ride Armor, and jump out of it in the air to reach the Heart Tank.

Boss Battle- Screw Masaider
Not too hard. His attacks are charging back and forth across the room and 
firing small Tornado Fangs at you. Just stay on the wall to avoid the Tornado 
Fang, and jump down behind him when he charges at the wall. Stay on one side if
he flashes green while charging to avoid being hit by the two rocks that fly up
at you.

Weapon gained- Dorirukurashu
I have no idea what it does. o_o
